Virtual Field Trip

About the Virtual Field Trip

Students inevitably encounter challenges and witness injustice in their lives, but the key is how they choose to react, resist, and move forward from such events. Take your class on a journey to meet real change-makers (both past and present) who have gone against what they knew was wrong and stood on their beliefs to positively impact their world.

The Courage to Act: Forming a Chain of Resistance Virtual Field Trip empowers students to rise against injustice and embrace their own agency to right the wrongs they see around them—from small everyday actions to large-scale community movements.
